Pre-seasonEdit

On June 12th, the San Jose Sharks named Todd McLellan their new head coach.[1]

The Sharks traded for defensemen Dan Boyle and Brad Lukowich from Tampa Bay and signed Rob Blake.

Former Shark Jeff Friesen tried out for a spot on the team, but the team released him before the season opener.

Kyle McLaren was placed on waivers, just before the regular season began. He was not claimed by anyone, so he was sent down to Worcester Sharks to receive more play time, and also so that the Sharks could play under the salary cap.
